Series III Diesel -78 converted to petrol 2 1/4 engine by some previous owner. Doesn't give a spark > doesn't ignite.
There's some odd "fix" that you will need to push separate button in a dashboard at the same time when turning the key and cranking the engine. I assume that button is supposed to bypass the ballast resistor.
I checked the leads and the other end is loose and I cannot find the ballast anywhere???
Where should I be looking and how many Ohms that would be?
I have measured all the leads and wires to distributor, contacts seem to be ok and clearance. Checked everything else but no spark so I suspect the ballast and the bypass switch connection at fault.
I measured the coil and it looks ok, also tested with other coil. Any ideas would be appreciated....:dunno:
